Electronic Commerce Centres

This page identifies Centres which provide some form of assistance in relation to Electronic Commerce. The concept of a 'Centre' is intended to refer to organisations that provide services, resources and/or co-ordination in an at least partly community-service and collaborative manner rather than on an entirely profit-motivated and competitive basis. To avoid omitting organisations of relevance, however, this working definition has been interpreted liberally.

There are many ways in which EC Centres can be classified. One that is particularly useful is according to the nature of the organisation driving the operation. Many Centres actually involve multiple organisations, and hence the classification scheme used below is imperfect:

Particularly important Centres are marked with three asterisks: '***'

Centres with a Government as Driver

Centres by Government for Government

Centres with an Industry Association or Consortium as Driver

Centres with a University as Driver

Centres with a For-Profit Corporation as Driver
